13.10 Saucy Salamander >> 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr

I ran a long overdue update on Ubuntu 13.10 yesterday which reminded me that Saucy Salamander is now officially defunct - best to upgrade to 14.x Trusty Tahr.  An upgrade was initiated via the native upgrade utility, over wireless, on a somewhat anemic sub-notebook, and completed start to finish in 1hr:26mn, on its own, with no intervention needed.  Really a testament to just how mature Ubuntu has become on the desktop.  All drivers (including WiFi and all-in-one WiFi printer) functioned as expected before, during, and after the upgrade completed.  Performance overall is notably improved - UI responsiveness, app launch, compute.  Both unexpected, and very welcome.
